Pontook Dam Trip Class II & III
The Pontook Dam Trip is available weekends & select holidays in May & June & Friday through Sunday in July & August!
The Pontook Dam Trip is a family friendly whitewater rafting adventure that goes along an absolutely gorgeous stretch of river and takes you down Class II & III whitewater that can get a bit technical depending on water level. Along this trip we'll play in the pour overs, try to catch some raft surfs, and nail a bunch of 2-3 foot breaking waves getting everyone in the boat soaked and leaving you exhilarated on a hot day. On the way down the river you'll see an active eagle's nest and osprey sightings are common. Don't be surprised if you see the occasional bear, moose, or deer along the riverbank! We keep all our trips very laid back which ensures plenty of time to swim and play games in the big eddy at the end of the rapids, such as boat wheelies!
This is a half day trip meeting in Gorham, NH at 9:30AM with the shuttle departing promptly at 10AM. Flexible start times available for large groups (must reserve flex times well in advance)! We will take two trips down the whitewater and return to base after a meal by approx. 4PM. Snacks will be served on the trip and a hearty late lunch at a local eatery will be waiting for us with a rotating menu - think fresh & hot pasta dishes, tossed fresh salads, seasonal vegetables, barbecue days and of course dessert! Adult beverages and ice cream available for purchase to cap of your day.
We also offer Guided Ducky (inflatable kayak) trips with our single or tandem open top, inflatable, self bailing kayaks. Our Ducky fleet is brand new, for your safety and enjoyment. We'll teach you all you need to know for a new level of independence and excitement on the Pontook Dam Trip. You must request the "Guided Ducky trip" in advance for this adventure!
